Frederick Arthur Round Emney (12 February 1902 – 25 December 1980) was an English character actor and comedian.[1]

Emney was born in Prescot, Lancashire,[2][3] the son of Blanche (née Round) and Fred Emney, a music hall entertainer.[4] His great-uncle was the actor Arthur Williams. Emney junior grew up in London and was educated at Cranleigh School.[5]

He made his film debut in 1935, having previously worked in music hall.[1][6] He became a familiar figure to screen audiences, usually playing the "posh fat bloke", usually gruff and invariably wearing a monocle.[5] During the 1950s, he had his own television show which featured sketches and deft piano pieces often composed by him.[7] Some were released on record.[8] He had a short spell as straight man to puppets Pinky and Perky.[9]

His sister Joan Emney was an actress who sometimes appeared with him in the same stage productions.[10]

Fred Emney died in Bognor Regis, Sussex, on Christmas Day 1980.[11]
